APC Will Not Be Relevant After 2019 — APC’s Dep. National Pub. Sec

The embattled Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, says the elongation of the tenure of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and others is an indication that the ruling party “is going nowhere beyond 2019”. Frank, stated this in a statement that was made available to the press on Wednesday;

“I am personally disappointed with the tenure extension of [the] Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led leadership. This has clearly shown that the APC is an undemocratic party. A party which has been in existence for three years but has never obeyed its own constitution.

“I challenge anybody to tell me which part of the APC constitution has been religiously obeyed in the past? This has shown again the difference between the PDP and the APC, but I know that the former is better.

“I will not relent in speaking the truth which I’m known for. This decision is against the wish of the majority but for the oppressors within the party.”

He queried the usefulness of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led reconciliation committee, and flayed the alleged injustice meted out to members of the PDP in the APC.

Frank said, “Even when the Presidency had appointed the National Leader of the APC to reconcile all the aggrieved members, the tenure elongation has clearly shown that the party is going nowhere beyond 2019. If they didn’t believe in Tinubu’s reconciliatory panel, why did they set it up at all?

“How can you keep a man that lacks capacity to lead a governing political party for another twelve months? This has shown that those who took such decision are selfish and do not mean well for APC.”

He added, “Some of us that came from the PDP have not been treated well. Even the positions being held today by the Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara were forcefully taken.

“Time will tell very soon when some of us will have to take decision against some of these anti-democratic tendencies of some people in APC.”
